Five Ways to Practice Mindfulness Throughout the Day

“Mindfulness is the practice of finding the realm before and after words take place. Cultivating the ability to live completely in the present, deeply aware and appreciative of life.” 

-Gary Goch What Book? Buddha Poems

Mindfulness and meditation can be an overwhelmingly peaceful combination. The act of mindfulness is something I have been working on since I was introduced to the practice by my aunt. She took me to a dharma class, and I have been hooked since then! It can be difficult to silence my thoughts because like most of you, I have roughly one thousand ideas running through my brain at any given time, but with practice it has become easier.

Being mindful is something I like to practice every day, to help me both on the golf course and just in life. Learning to breathe, and calm your thoughts can be so beneficial for tasks that require patience. Learning to accept the feelings you have at any particular moment, and then letting them go without holding onto them is a very freeing practice that will change the way you think about things, and what you focus your energy on.

For example, if I hit a bad shot in a tournament, I can be disappointed and categorize that shot in my head as one that I will practice more in the future, and then move on. I will not hold on to that shot and let it discourage me. The same applies to life, where there will be bad breaks or people that are hard to deal with, but you accept the feelings you have and then let them go. Working on mindfulness can be so peaceful, and you don’t need expensive gear or a lot of time to practice throughout the day.

It can be difficult to devote time to practicing mindfulness each day, so I put together a small list of five ways to practice being mindful throughout the day:

Five Ways to Practice Mindfulness Throughout the Day

1. Turn basic everyday tasks into a practice session. When you’re making your bed in the morning, or making your coffee, use that small amount of time to practice being mindful. Focus on your breathing, how you feel at that moment, what sounds you hear, etc. Something as simple as this can be a great way to start your morning.

2. Give five minutes of your undivided attention to something. Whether it’s a book you are reading, or again, you just want to focus on your breathing, simply give all of your attention to that thought for just a few minutes. This will help you focus better and be more conscious about what you give your thoughts to.

3. Take a walk outside and just enjoy what the world has to offer. Notice the sounds and the weather, the people, and everything around you. Appreciate being there in that moment without thinking about the past or future.

4. Find beauty in the simple things. Appreciate the sunrise or the sunset, or how a book can make you feel, or the way your tea smells, etc. There is beauty everywhere if you are looking for it.

5. Mindful eating. Be mindful when you eat, focusing on nourishing your body and feeding it wholesome nutrients that will give you energy for the day. Appreciate the flavors and techniques that were used to create the food.

Any of these sugestions can help bring awareness to the present moment, and help you appreciate what life has to offer. These tips are easy to practice in small increments, and over time can help you become more mindful in all aspects of your life.

  21. Great blog post. Some tips i would like to make contributions about is that laptop memory must be purchased in case your computer still cannot cope with everything you do along with it. One can install two random access memory boards containing 1GB each, as an illustration, but not certainly one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should make sure the company’s documentation for one’s PC to make sure what type of ram is required.

  27. It is indeed my belief that mesothelioma is actually the most deadly cancer. It has unusual characteristics. The more I really look at it the greater I am persuaded it does not react like a real solid cells cancer. If perhaps mesothelioma is a rogue virus-like infection, then there is the prospects for developing a vaccine plus offering vaccination for asbestos exposed people who are really at high risk regarding developing potential asbestos connected malignancies. Thanks for sharing your ideas for this important health issue.

  29. I have figured out some important things through your blog post post. One other point I would like to mention is that there are lots of games available on the market designed specially for toddler age young children. They include things like pattern identification, colors, animals, and designs. These often focus on familiarization in lieu of memorization. This will keep children occupied without having the experience like they are studying. Thanks
